In Richmond, Virginia chief medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta uncovers brutal rapes and murders of four unlucky women. Each one is different from the other, except for the fact that they each live alone. With the help of new forensic research, her "partner" Marino, and other specialists, she uncovers the killer and how he picks his victims. She has to be careful though, there is sabotage within the company and a killer is after her.

Postmortem is a very enjoyable read. It is the first book in the Dr. Kay Scarpetta series that Patricia Cornwell wrote. The book has to do with forensic science, a couple of main character, a very intense plot, and an overwhelming mystery that is powerful and that keeps you looking for clues. For the first book that Patricia Cornwell has written it is good, however if you do not like the book I recommend you read some other books in the Dr. Kay Scarpetta series. As the series progress the books get better and better. When compared to the other books that she has written this book is average. It is intense yet it does not have that bang like the other books have. I also do not like the dialogue that is in this book. It is a little fake for me, and after reading the other books in the series it does not compare. However, Postmortem keeps you on the edge of your seat, it is a great thriller that will keep you interested and wanting more. I would recommend this book and the series to anyone who enjoys a great thriller and mystery.

The book Postmortem deals with death and forensic science. With these two factors combined a mystery is solved by science and technology. When someone is murder in this book an autopsy is performed. A collection of samples is taken from the victim, which includes fibers and hairs. The specimens are taken to be compared, and technological instruments are used to show microscopic specimens. Throughout this book science and technology are being used to find the killer of the four women. DNA comparison is used to compare the killers semen to what was found on the bodies, a laser was used to light up the substances on all of the victim's bodies, and lab tests were done to ensure the results of what was expected. Science and technology was also used to nab the person who was sabotaging Dr. Kay Scarpetta, though I will not tell you how and who it is. Science and technology play a role in the book Postmortem. Most mystery books have some technology and science incorporated throughout, but the Dr. Kay Scarpetta series is based on science and technology. Forensic science and technology is used mainly in this book to catch the killer.

Postmortem is a forensic mystery. It is an intense read and a book that will keep you wanting more. Throughout the book science and technology is what the concentration is on. This is what gets the killer behind bars. It is a hard book to put down, ( )

After sleeping on it, I give this a 4.5 star rounded up.

I really, really enjoyed this. It will not be for everyone, but it made my forensic loving heart happy. There were parts I wasn't a fan of, but finding a perfect book is few and far between. I can't wait to keep reading this series!!! ( )

Dr. Kay Scarpetta leitet seit Kurzem die Gerichtsmedizin in Richmond, Virginia. Sie wird in durch Sergeant Pete Marino von der Mordkommission in einen Fall hineingezogen, bei dem ein Serientäter Frauen erwürgt. Er tut das immer samstags und scheinbar gibt es kein Motiv und keine Verbindung zu den Opfern. Kay findet mit neuesten Methoden eine fluoreszierende Substanz, die der Mörder an den Tatorten hinterließ. Werden Kay und Pete den Mörder schnappen können, bevor es weitere Opfer gibt? Die Zeit drängt.
Es ist ein wenig seltsam den ersten Band einer Reihe zu erleben, der schon vor zig Jahren erschienen ist. Da ich schon einige Bücher aus der Reihe kenne, ist es aber interessant, zu erfahren, wie Pete und Kay damals zusammengetroffen sind. Der Schreibstil der Autorin Patricia Cornwell ist wie immer gut verständlich und recht sachlich. Allerdings finde ich, dass einiges doch sehr langatmig beschrieben ist.
Kay Scarpetta ist eine sympathische und clevere Frau, die es nicht einfach hat in einem männerdominierten Umfeld. Sie kann nicht aufhören nachzuforschen, bis alles geklärt ist, denn sie will, dass den Opfern Gerechtigkeit widerfährt. Sie versucht ihren Job und ihr Privatleben zu koordinieren, was mit einigen Schwierigkeiten verbunden ist. Auch ihre Nichte Lucy gefällt mir gut. Pete Marino ist ebenfalls ein interessanter Typ.
Es ist alles in allem ein spannender Fall, bei dem es mehrere Verdächtige gibt. Erst kurz vor dem Ende taucht der Täter recht unvermittelt auf. Außerdem gibt es jemanden, der in Kays Computer spioniert und ihre Untersuchungen behindert.
Die Sprecherin Kaja Sesterhenn hat eine angenehme Stimme und liest in einem ordentlichen Tempo, allerdings bei den Dialogen hapert es schonmal.
Ein spannender, manchmal etwas brutaler Krimi. ( )

I stayed with Patricia Cornwell over the years, through the many books and many gossipy scandals. So, I decided to go back and see how those books held up a couple decades later, like [[Sue Grafton]] holds up. But Cornwell's work suffers quite a bit these many years later. In her time, she was one of he first to feature a strong woman protagonist, and one with a very special set of skills. As Scarpetta grew over the series, Cornwell made her increasingly bitter - it was hard not to wonder how much of her own personality bled through to the character. But it was a surprise to find the seeds of Scarpitta's bitterness in the very first book. Also, the scientific bits seemed quite dusty, so much having changed over the years in the world of forensic pathology. The story is also one of its time - a serial killer picking off women in horrible ways and eventually targeting Scarpetta, too. I stopped here without reading any further into the series again.

2 1/2 bones!!! ( )
